Why Location Services (GPS) should be turned on for Homesnap
Location Services (or GPS) needs to be enabled on your device for a couple of reasons:
- To receive the correct information about properties when snapping photos, the app needs to know where you are located. The snapping feature relies solely on your GPS location, not the image of the property you are snapping.
- The Safety Timer feature will only work if you have the Location Services turned on, and can only be activated if you are within 2000 ft. of a residential property. If you are in distress, the app needs to know your location in order to notify your emergency contacts.
